In Pictures: How life has changed across the world in fight against Covid-19

Pandemics are by nature worldwide events and the Covid-19 outbreak has seen every country forced to change the lives of its citizens in the battle to beat it.

Confined to home, many are having to while away the hours in confinement amid efforts to keep the virus at bay.
